Clorox® ToiletWand™

Hands down, to date, the most innovative invention of the 21st century.

Official Web Site
- Bet you didn't even know there was one.

An Official Review from about.com's housekeeping section.

The Pros and Cons from the review...

  • One of the easiest cleaning products you'll ever use.
  • Really works well on dirty toilets.
  • No need to touch toilet water, or cleaning solution.
  • Cost is more than a non-disposable toilet brush.
  • The cleaning heads are not flushable and must be thrown away.
  • Heavily stained toilets may need a harsher product.

I would like to take this time to rebuttal the cons from this particular review. Disposable products generally cost more since you buy them over and over again. I believe the point of this product is to be disposable so you don't have a toilet brush sitting around somewhere. The cleaning heads are not flushable because you're not supposed to be flushing anything down there that's not paper anyway. Finally, if you're toilet is that dirty you have probably never owned any kind of toilet cleaning product before anyway so don't bother starting now.

I approve the Clorox® ToiletWand™™ for the use of bachelors who want to make a good impression on any one who would be found in the bathroom of their bacheloror pad, and for married men who want to earn brownie points with the wife. It takes all of a couple of minutes to clean a toilet and you don't have to mess with any blue liquid.

Digital Old People

A lady came into the computer shot the other day who's husband had just passed away. She was wanting to back up the data on his computer to a CD. It was interesting to me that, as old as she was, she had files, records, even journals in a digital format.

As interesting as that is, it's even harder to imagine how much digital crap I'll have when I'm her age. My digital life began to accumulate from the time I was in high school with homework assignments and pictures. I still have saved games from Ultima VII. Ten years later my electronic storage has increased exponentially. Who knows what will become of it all tomorrow...
